Your love of mum combined with her love of macadamias make these a perfect gift on Mother’s Day.
150 g best quality unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup (75g) icing sugar
1 cup (150g) plain flour
½ cup (75g) cornflour
½ cup raw macadamias, roughly chopped
1 Preheat oven to 160°C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper.
2 Place the butter in a bowl and sprinkle over the icing sugar. Using a wooden spoon, rub the sugar into the butter. Add combined sifted flours and continue to mix with the spoon until combined.
3 Place the dough on a lightly floured surface. Sprinkle the macadamias over the dough and knead very gently to combine them through the mixture. Shape the dough into a ball and flatten to form a disc.
4 Roll the dough out between two sheets of baking paper until it is 1cm thick. Remove the top sheet of paper and cut out hearts using a heart-shaped cutter. Place the hearts on the lined baking tray. Combine the scraps and repeat this procedure, until all the dough is used.
5 Place on the middle oven rack and bake for 10-15 minutes, watching carefully, until they just begin to turn golden. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes before moving them individually with a metal spatula to cool completely on a wire rack.
6 Store in an airtight container.
